Chuck Hagel: Transgender Military Ban 'Continually Should Be Reviewed'

Monday, 12 May 2014 11:24 AM By Nick Sanchez

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said in an interview over the weekend that the ban on transgender service members in the military "should be reviewed."

The comment was prompted by a question from ABC News' Martha Raddatz on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," who alluded to the findings of an independent commission in March led by former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders. The commission found "no compelling medical reason" to maintain the ban.

"I do think it continually should be reviewed," said Hagel of the ban. "I'm open to those assessments, because, again, I go back to the bottom line, every qualified American who wants to serve our country should have an opportunity if they fit the qualifications and can do it."

Is this all that Chuckie has to worry about? Will the military survive without a bunch of freaks dressed up like women? Get a life Chuck! You creep.

Should be, but won’t be. The genie is out and there is no military will to put it back.

Jocelyn Elders? ‘Jerk-off Jocelyn’?
Cross-dressing troops? Trannie troopers?

This is crazy talk. The Russians and Chinese must be laughing their butts off: “They’ll scratch our eyes out!”
Obama couldn’t do more harm if he were a commie mole.

“every qualified American who wants to serve our country should have an opportunity “

fairness, equality, diversity are apparently more important than the security of our country. so in other words, if we can’t have a military that is able to defend our country while celebrating diversity, then we’ll have to make do with an inferior defense.

I cant believe I have to even split hairs like this. But if I could ever be convinced that homosexuals are basically maladjusted people, and could serve somewhat normally, transsexuals are another animal.

Not saying homos are normal here, but cutting off body parts is utterly deranged, psycho, crazy, bark at the moon stuff.

If I had a gay relative, I suppose id interact with them politely at thanksgiving and get through it. But I wouldn’t let a transgender in my door. That’s too insane to interact with. And our sec of def thinks its ok.

We might as well not even have a military if they’re going to have transgender freaks on the front lines.... unless maybe they’re part of a distraction tactic to draw fire and make our enemies fall down laughing while we flank them. Obama has done a great job with our military....for our enemies...

Next up for our military: Homo deviants doing animals.

Oops, is homo a hate word I can be arrested for? Come get me you damn perverts, and especially you, Holder who doesn't enforce so many laws on the books.

Just can't wait until a pervert assaults/batters (just simple touching) a straight Marine, soldier, sailor or airman and we all realize what has happened. It's bound to occur as sure as those pervs live their lives for the rears of others.

I hate. Let me say that again so Holder and other dim bulbs are clear in my meaning...I despise men who kiss men and the other sick crap they do! Got it?

They disgust me and I have NO tolerance for them buggering each other. Come arrest me - I dare you. You know how many lawyers would line up just to make a name for themselves against your anti 1st Amendment case against me speaking out against homo perverts?

Come on Holder. Let's do it. I'm sick of your NSA spying crap and your other negligence. Give me a CAUSE before I get too old. Please!!!

I dunno. Between a dude who gets his sexual kicks rummaging around in another guy’s poo-filled colon, and a dude who wants to chop his member off and wear dresses and makeup, I don’t see much of a difference. Sick and crazy, both. And too mentally unstable to trust in positions of power and responsibility, especially when it comes to our nation’s defense.

Well, what would they do? All I can think of is to maybe poke ‘em with a stick from 10 feet away? What DO you do to torture them? Reach down to cut off their Johnson and see someone done beat ‘em to it? Pinch their nipples with pliers? Hell, it does that to itself just for fun every afternoon!
Weird weird times these are.

Just watch, what this is really about is free sex changes. Join the navy for 4 years. Be “treated” for your transsexual medical needs, and get expensive sex change process at taxpayer expense.
Don’t know what it costs, but it cant be fast or cheap.

But follow the money, that’s what this is about.

Agree entirely. I posted too soon thinking "transvestite", which I really don't have a problem with since some straight men like wearing women's cloths - but their still straight. Don't get, but not a problem for me.

Transgendered, as in cutting off a penis or trying to add one as in the case of Chasity Bono? Really? The Sec of Defense doesn't think there is a problem in their minds? This is even worse than open homos in the military.

OMG, I said homo again. Nowadays they've gone back to "queer". They think it special in Frisco. But if a straight calls them that, it's like a white calling a black person "n*****". Notice I had to block it out for my wife's safety? I hate PC and don't mean that niggardly.

No one wants to ask the hard question is what would transgender individuals add to national security? Nothing and they would add just another headache as open homosexuals already are. The number of sex assaults have risen dramatically exactly in line with what was expected and same sex assaults are leading the way but we can’t talk about that. We can’t say anything or the politburo of political correctness will punish us.

I figure the reason he’s pushing the transgender stuff is so he can tryout a new wardrobe or something. Maybe a wig. Whatever it is, he’s taking the “Be Whatever You Can Be” thing a little too far. IMHO.

There's also no way that society will put it back in the bottle - many still have their pipe dreams about it but it ain't gonna happen.

He seems to be overly concerned with homosexuals, transgenders and other sexual oddities of nature.

Is there something about Chuck’s personal sexual proclivities that hasn’t made it to his resume?

Or is he just being a good Obama Butt Boy?

‘fairness, equality, diversity are apparently more important than the security of our country’

Yes. A friend shared with me a memo he drew up right after a long and alcohol lubricated talk with a fellow USMA classmate who got out of the active Army and went to Georgetown U Law. He now works for the biggest of the K Street layer-lobbyist firms and is proud of it. According to this Wizard of Smart the only thing that matters is transforming the ‘regnant culture’ of the US from a ‘white male Christian hegemonic’ one to one in which ‘fairness and diversity and equality’ trump ‘antiquated notions of personal liberty and honor’. Also the US population has to be made ‘look more like the world’ (code words for lots of unskilled, dark skinned , unassimilateable actors of love to be let in wave after wave) . This is so the US can be ‘transformed’ into a society and country that can be led to be part of the emerging global governance regime of a borderless world. This guy thoroughly believes this stuff and is proud to be one of the ‘vital few’ as he calls himself helping ‘shape the future’.
